Year 3 Build Anderson shelters.

Posted: 30th September 2015

The children in Year 3 have been making Anderson shelters as part of their topic lessons. They collected recycling material from home to use for their shelters. They had to work in a group and collaborate to design a shelter which would withstand wind (hair dryer!), rain (watering can), and bombs (tennis ball). One lesson was spent discussing, brainstorming and designing on paper before the real hands on work began. The children then started to build their shelters which they thoroughly enjoyed. I am not sure the cleaners enjoyed it so much - it looked like it had snowed inside! The shelters are almost all finished now and it will soon be time to put them to the test this week (weather permitting). You can see from the pictures that the children were engaged, creative and working well together.
